AGRICULTURE AND FOOD FAIR THIS WEEKEND

"Healthy Farms, Healthy Children, Healthy Future" is the theme of the University of the Virgin Islands 19th annual Agriculture and Food Fair starting at 9 a.m.Saturday and 10 a.m. Sunday on the grounds of the Reichhold Center for the Arts.
Brush up on your baking and you can enter Frank's Bake Shop's "Best Tasting Sweetbread" or "Best Tasting Maubi" contest. On Sunday you can jam to P'your Passion or the VIHA Steel Orchestra. And, naturally, there's the pony rides and the petting zoo. And these are just for openers.
Workshops in composting, plant propagation/grafting and food safety will be presented both days. And the fair's traditional bountiful displays of local fruits and vegetables and plants will be on sale, along with arts and crafts. Sweetbread and Maubi judging will be at 1:30 p.m. Sunday.
And for those who are up to it, there's a Chidren's Animal Imitation contest each day at 3 p.m.
Admission is $2 for adults, and $.50 for children 12 and younger. For further information, call (340) 774-5182 or (340) 693-1080.
